SUNDAY, MARCH 29

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Today is the sixth Sunday of Great Lent called the Sunday of Advent.  Our Lord says in the Gospel of St. Matthew 22:37-39: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the great and first commandment.   And the second is similar: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Are we trying to fulfill these commandments in our lives? Very hard but doable!).

The readings of today: Is66:1-24 (Isaiah), Col 2:8-3:17 (Colossians), and Mt 22:34-23:39 (Matthew).

Have a blessed Sunday.

Prayerfully, Fr. Serovpe

SATURDAY, MARCH 28

Good morning dear faithful,

Today is the feast of St. Gregory the Enlightener’s terrible passion and entrance into Khor Virab. Let us ask his intercession.  “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him.   But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.” James1:5-6. (as a hint, is doubt my friend?).

The readings of today: Wis1:15-2:22 (wisdom of Solomon), Mic7:7-10 (Micah), Phil 1:12-21 (Philippians), and Mt 16:24-28 (Matthew).

Have a blessed day.

Prayerfully, Fr. Serovpe,

FRIDAY, MARCH 27

Good morning Dear Faithful,

“Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love towards us; and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.  Praise the Lord!” Psalm 117.  (Do we feel blessed and special for having such a loving Father in heaven?)

The suggested readings for today: Is 53:1-54:5 (Isaiah) and 1 Cor 15:1-28 ( Corinthians).

May the abundant blessings of our sweet Father fill our homes.

Undoubtedly, many of you are familiar with Dr. Jane Mahakian, a Gerontologist who specializes in working with adults with dementia as well as their families.   She recently launched an online Dementia Caregiver Support Group.  If you know of any parishioners who need a little extra support as they are caring for a loved one, please send them the link below for details.  They may find this to be very helpful. https://conta.cc/3bqF5PF

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

 

Today is the 31st day of Great Lent.  Jesus said: “Let your light to shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16).  ( As a hint, how should we live? what should we do? Especially during this season, so that through our deeds, people glorify our Creator). The suggested readings of today: Ex4:1-21 (Exodus) and Joel 3:9-21. Have a blessed day.

TUESDAY, MARCH 24

Dear faithful,

May the blessings of our Savior Jesus Christ be with you all. Let us try to meditate today on these two verses: “I lift up my eyes to the hills.  From whence does my help come?  My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2.  (As a hint, when we think everything is going wrong in our lives, as Christians, what should we do?  Also, the suggested reading for today is: Is7:10-8:10. (Isaiah).

Have a wonderful day.

MONDAY, MARCH 23

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

As we send you the “Quote of the day”, we encourage you to take few minutes during this day, and meditate on this quote: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want; he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.” Psalm 23:1-3. (as a hint, maybe we can meditate on the relationship between the shepherd and the flock, if I am the sheep and God is the Shepherd). Also, the suggested reading for today is Heb1:1-14. (Hebrews).

 

Have a blessed day.

Prayerfully, Fr. Serovpe
